More awesome dates coming up! Variety is the spice of life!

It’s been a great month so far, and it’s not even half over! I’ve done a band show, several solo shows, had some great artists sit in with me, and even had a visual artist painting live on canvas during my show! One good thing about this music business – I never get bored!

I had a wonderful time in Ohio the first weekend in August. Getting to play the Cincinnati Blues Festival with my band was awesome, because they rock the house every time! And we were treated like royalty! A special thanks to my friend, Lisa Biales, for joining us on stage and backing me up. Thanks so much, too, to Nancy and Steve Broermann for looking after us all.

The next night I played a solo show in Columbus, at the Hey Hey Club, one of my favorite places. I had a large time having Lisa back on stage with me, and she and Long Tall Deb backed me up. Then I was off to Silverton to play a benefit for Women Writing For A Change. I enjoyed Raison d’Etre and Emily Ash sitting in with me. A huge Thanks goes out to Bev Bowers for always working endlessly to promote women in the arts.

While I was in Cincinnati, Alison and Dave Petrik presented me with a mug from the famous Rookwood Pottery, commissioned for a limited run for the Cincy Blues Society.

Before flying home, I went by the Rookwood Pottery plant and met the artist who designed it, Roy Robinson. Etched into the big blue mug is “Keeping Blues Alive”. I love it!

Last Saturday I had a blast with Heather Wilkerson at the Crimson Moon Café in Dahlonega, Georgia. I had never done anything like that before, and it was fascinating! Heather painted, live on stage, as I performed.

She let the music influence her, and the end result was an awesome painting that she sold to someone in the audience. She’s one talented gal! And here’s her finished painting!

I have some more really fun stuff coming up, too. This Saturday I’ll have my band with me, and we’ll rock the house at Bradfordville Blues Club in Tallahassee. And if you can’t make it to the show, the first set will be live on the internet on http://www.1061thepath.com. Listen in, and enjoy the show with us!

Then next Saturday I’m doing a house concert in a barn! That’s right! I’ll be in Eatonton, Georgia at the Crooked Pines Farm, doing a writer’s night in their barn with two other southern singer/songwriters – Kyrsta Nick and Tori Lee Averett. It’s gonna be a wonderful night of original music, and I can’t wait.

I’m working on some other interesting things too, but for now, y’all come see me. I’m always looking for your smiling faces looking back at me. And I appreciate each and every one of you!!

Keep a song in your heart!

EG

About EGKight

I've made music most of my life, and I enjoy every aspect of it. I'm a roots singer, songwriter, entertainer, publisher, and producer. My musical style has been called “country-flavored southern-fried blues.” I've headlined at clubs, theaters and festivals across America and in Europe. And my songs have been recorded by artists across the genres. Even my mentor, Koko Taylor, recorded a couple of my songs, and they landed on her last two Grammy nominated albums. I've had songs on five major TV networks, and I placed five songs in a movie that's available on Amazon Prime. I love songwriting, and I love performing, and I love to see all my fans at my shows. I'll see you out there on the road!

    We had a wonderful time, our first, at the Cincinnati Bluesfest! Knowing that E.G. Kight was on the venue was the reason we were there. Great show, E.G. We always enjoy your appearances at the Hey Hey! Hope you’re at the Fest next year. We plan to make it a yearly weekend.
